Career Launcher

Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) created the Career Launcher program in 2015 to help transition highly skilled students and grads to future-ready employment. Over the past few years, Career Launcher has branched out to include additional offerings and is now a platform for a range of CICan’s programs.

Our programs provide wage subsidies and hiring incentives to help address labour shortages, strengthen industries, and improve equity and diversity in the workplace. We help job seekers access meaningful employment and free training opportunities to kickstart their careers.
